Isaiah Epps To Transfer From Pitt Basketball, According To Report

The Pitt Panthers will lose redshirt freshman Isaiah Epps, as he has decided to transfer from the Pitt program for family reasons.

The Pittsburgh Panthers will be losing one of their highly touted recruits from the 2009 signing class. Isaiah Epps, a redshirt freshman, will be transferring from the Pitt basketball program, according to a report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Pitt redshirt freshman Isaiah Epps has decided to transfer. Epps, a highly touted recruit when he was signed in 2009, was used sparingly this season.

During this past season at Pitt, Epps started just two games and appeared in 19 others, scoring a total of just two-points. The highly touted recruit was used sparingly during the season and even had fifth-year walk-on Nick Rivers coming off the bench before him.

"We have been in constant communication with Isaiah regarding his family's well-being," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon told the Post-Gazette. "We believe that it is best for Isaiah to be close to home and we will assist him in finding the best possible situation to reach his goals-both academically and athletically."

Pitt now has two scholarships available for the spring signing period, which begins next week.
